Latest Patch For Destiny Improves Exotic Weapons, Frame Rate On Xbox One And More

With the release of The Dark Below expansion set for next week, Bungie released a mammoth new update for Destiny yesterday. The patch addresses several issues with the title, including weapon balance, technical problems and more.

Courtesy of Bungie, here are the full Destiny December 1 patch notes:

Weapons

Exotics

Exotic Weapons are designed to look, feel, and sound overpowered. At the same time, they are not supposed to break the balance of the game. We hope these weapons challenge the way players think about their loadouts. Exotics will be a constant work in-progress!

General In preparation for the Dark Below, Exotic Armor and Weapons no longer require Ascendant Materials to upgrade The final upgrade node of all Exotic Gear will require an Exotic Shard Exotic Shards can be obtained by one of the following means: Dismantling unwanted Exotics Purchased from Xur for 7 Strange Coins Exotics now start at a

On Trial: Blinkbox vs. Netflix vs. Now TV vs. Amazon vs. Wuaki.TV

We made the switch to streaming only services here at Nerdly HQ almost a year ago and have never looked back.. There’s very little between the services in terms of content, its the Pq and Aq that are the real differences and the winner on that side of things, at least in our BT Infinity 2 household is Netflix – the HD content look amazing, there’s very little buffering and even less picture break-up, something which can’t be said for the majority of the other services out there. My thoughts:

Blinkbox

Before Tesco took over Blinkbox [completely] I was a real advocate for their service. The choice of free content was great for families, and some of the completely free movies they had were real rarities, stuff that hadn’t seen the light of day since VHS. But times have changed and now (last time I checked) the free stuff

‘Kick-Ass 2′ Review

Stars: Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Morris Chestnut, John Leguizamo, Donald Faison, Jim Carrey | Written and Directed by Jeff Wadlow

When we last saw Hit Girl and Kick-Ass, they were trying to live as normal teenagers Mindy and Dave. With graduation looming and uncertain what to do, Dave decides to start the world’s first superhero team with Mindy. Unfortunately, when Mindy is busted for sneaking out as Hit Girl, she’s forced to give up crime-fighting – leaving her to navigate the terrifying world of high-school mean girls whilst Dave hits the streets on his own. With no one left to turn to, Dave joins forces with Justice Forever, run by a born-again ex-mobster named Colonel Stars and Stripes. Just as they start to make a real difference on the streets, Red Mist – reborn as The Mother Fucker, the world’s first super villain – assembles his own evil

Lindy Booth Up For The Role Of Night Bitch In Kick-Ass 2

The power-less squad of oddball comic book superheroes known as Justice Forever continues to find its onscreen equivalents in Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall as THR has revealed that Lindy Booth is in talks to join the sequel in the role of Night Bitch.

Read up on what we can expect with this interestingly named heroine:

“Night Bitch is one of the new superheroes that was inspired by Kick-Ass and the rise of the other Superheroes. She claims that the main driving force behind what she does was the murder of her sister, who was then found in a dumpster. Her identity is currently secret and given that a few heroes have lied about their origins in the past, hers is also questionable. Armed with a long pole that matches the colour of her costume, she joined Justice Forever and participated in their first mission, to shut down a human trafficking organization.

Five Things You Don't Know About Cassie Steele

This Canadian actress and singer-songwriter is best known for portraying Manny Santos on Degrassi: The Next Generation. But she's now drawing a whole new fan base in her role as aspiring actress Abby Vargas on the new CW series The L.A. Complex. Here are five things you probably don't know about Cassie Steele.

1. Born December 2, 1989 in Toronto, Canada -- her father is of British descent and her mother's background is Filipino.

Adrian Paul: The Highlander that never lost his head

A box of sour nerds, a glass of lumpy Nesquik and a sedentary evening of all the low-budget Sci-Fi that Sky One had to offer. A classic late-90s night in. For much of the mid-20s generation, Buffy, Relic Hunter and Dark Skies were all part of a staple diet, or maybe just an amuse bouche for the 6 o’clock Simpsons. But of all the fantasy series classics, it was Highlander was the one that left so many palates divided. Back in those carefree days of 1997, there were two schools of awkward pre-teens, those who followed Highlander, and those who tolerated it after the closing credits of Quantum Leap.

Even if you were part of the latter, the one thing you will remember is Adrian Paul, with his wet look hair and errie resemblance to a young Sean Connery. To the horror of Lambert fanboys across the board, Paul,

Episode Recap: Navy NCIS - 7.07: "Endgame"

  • PopStar
A Db is found in the woods. Tony (Michael Weatherly) rifles through McGee's (Sean Murray) things and his self-help CDs. Ziva (Cote de Pablo) calls that wrong and he thinks perhaps McGee's already satisfied. Tony listens to the man on the self-help CD and he loves his voice, Tony: "...like a poor man's Shatner." Tony knows exactly who he is and doesn't need any help. Tony: "I may not be pretty, but I am Di Nozzo, hear me roar!" Well, you're pretty to many, Tony/Michael. Ziva comments, hear him roar, "like an elephant." Gibbs (Mark Harmon) tells Tony to get out of McGee's desk. Tony calls him 'Little Timmy' who's out buying coffee. McGee meets a woman, or rather, she meets him, that meeting appeared contrived. How long's he been going there and no, not a remote chance of meeting a woman, any woman, let alone one who works there sometimes.

Michael Urie Geeks It Up In TBS Pilot "Brain Trust"

We're all still mourning the demise of Ugly Betty, and as time passes and we see a dearth of shows with gay inclusiveness, it's easier to appreciate just how special that show was.

A major reason for Betty's success was the character of Marc, played by Michael Urie. Marc started out as a one-episode character, but thanks to Michael's chemistry with so-star Vanessa Williams, the role was expanded and made a regular on the series.

Through the course of the four seasons, Marc went from a one-note, shrill stereotype to a fully realized, multi-dimensional man thanks to the skills of Michael, who made us care for this flawed and funny character.

Since Ugly Betty ended Michael has returned to his theater roots, starring in The Temperamentals and soon will take-off in Angels in America, and now comes word that he may return to weekly TV.

Zombies + Terrorists = A Scary Good Time

Zombies + Terrorists = A Scary Good Time
Premiering at the American Film Market is a new film called The Terror Experiment, which is reported to be a Quarantine-esque thriller about "psychotic rage-aholics."  So, pretty much zombies without the "rising from the grave" part?  The cast looks pretty decent: C. Thomas Howell (The Hitcher), Jason London (The Prophecy: Forsaken), Judd Nelson (The Breakfast Club, Dark Asylum), Robert Carradine (Escape from L.A.) and Lochlyn Munro (Scary Movie).  George Mendeluk (Relic Hunter) directs.  After the jump, check out the official synopsis. On the morning of Christmas Eve, a terrorist sets off an explosion that rocks the Federal building and unleashes a toxic gas throughout the ventilation...

25 Men Who Might Actually Consider Posing for “Playgirl”!

You can’t buy the kind of publicity Playgirl magazine has received for getting Levi Johnston to pose naked.

Well, actually, I guess you can. What did the magazine pay the ex-future-second-son-in-law anyway? Given all the ink and pixels that have been spilled over this, it was pretty good deal for Playgirl, especially since the word now is that he didn’t even do the whole lumberjack.

Not surprisingly, the magazine is said to be eagerly looking for other famous folks willing to disrobe.

We have some suggestions.

But let’s face it: Jake Gyllenhaal and Chris Evans are never going to pose naked for Playgirl. The same goes for virtually every other person on our annual Hot 100 list. These folks are at the very peak of their careers, and they need neither the money nor the, uh, exposure.

That said, there are plenty of other familiar faces (and bodies

Review: Warehouse 13 Pilot from Sci Fi

Warehouse 13, a new show set to premiere on the Sci Fi Channel in July, seems to be a mish-mash of various other shows, such as:

(1) The X-Files, which I loved. You’ve got the two partners here (male and female). The male is slightly more eccentric and a rule-breaker. He’s also the kind of guy who follows hunches, whereas the female partner is much more by-the-book. The difference between X-Files and Warehouse 13? There’s no aliens. Yet.

(2) Relic Hunter. I never watched that show, but Warehouse 13 has an old-world sort of feel to it, particularly the kind of equipment used on the show. This comparison might be bad, because I’m making this judgment based solely on commercials for Relic Hunter, but this makes sense to me.

(3) The Librarian TV movies. I love Noah Wyle and these TV movies were actually kind of cute. It’s
